We have loved being apart of the Michaels’ Makers team for the past few years. It’s so great to be apart of the Michael’s “MAKERS” movement. I love being inspired to create…and that is Michael’s goal…to inpire ALL to create.
We look forward to another great year sharing tutorials and ideas with you…our readers! We love the Michaels’ challenges and can’t wait to see what they have in store this year. We would love you to follow along and join us in creating. You can follow along with the hashtag #michaelsmakers. We would absolutely love to see what you create.
In July, I was able to attend the Michaels’ Makers Summit in the beautiful Sonoma, California. While there, I was able to meet the Michaels’ Makers Team (a group of 50 inspiring and creative women), learn about Michaels’ Vision, and create some amazing projects with fabulous instructors from Creativebug (hundreds of craft classes online!). It was awe-inspiring to be surrounded by so much beauty in one place. The perfect place to get those “creative juices” flowing.
There were beautiful flowers everywhere and fresh fruit and veggies at our fingertips. I saw limes growing bigger than grapefruit!
The garden party was gorgeous…and we made pretty flower crowns.
I’m excited to share with you the craft classes I was able to attend with Creativebug. We are excited to share that our readers will be able to access these four classes for free through August 22nd. You will love them. Amazing teachers…and craft classes…right from your computer or tablet. I’m sharing 4 of the classes with you today.
In this class we learned how to weave on looms – and make Yarn Wall hangings. I have another fun idea to make with this loom…and can’t wait to share soon. I found this so relaxing. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy weaving. Annabel was such a great teacher. She teaches sewing classes to kids all over, and has written books on sewing and weaving.
I loved getting to know Yao Cheng. If you have ever wanted to try Watercoloring, you will love to take Yao Chengs beginning class. I fell in love with watercolor and can’t wait to do more! I love her style. You have to give it a go! If I can do it…you can do it!
Livia Cetti taught us the art of tissue paper flowers. I was amazed at how real her paper peonies look. So beautiful. She has made thousands for events and weddings. From the stem…to the petals, you can learn how to make these gorgeous flowers too. They take a lot of patience, but are so worth it in the end.
I loved Courtney! Her passion for art and creating in contagious. I loved how simple, yet beautiful image transferring can be. You will love the different techniques she teaches in her class.
You will love Creativebug and we hope you will take advantage of the free classes this month!
